Invented by a 13-year-old girl from New Zealand, with the purpose of making easy task of splitting firewood, the Kindling Cracker ($85) is a cast iron device that offers a safer way to produce kindling. Much safer than swinging a sharp axe above your head!

To use it, place a log into the 6.5” diameter top ring and strike the piece of wood with a mallet or another log against the splitting wedge. You’ll quickly get a large amount of fire material for your stove, fire pit, smoker, pizza oven, etc., (almost) effortlessly, and you’ll be able to control the size of the splits. The simple, one-piece, solid cracker is practically maintenance-free and has bolt holes for permanent mounting.
